Outdoor Journal Tour

We hike to heal

In: Apparel >

Our mission is to encourage women all over the world to tap into the healing and empowering influences within ourselves, our communities and the Great Outdoors.

The idea for the Outdoor Journal Tour and our signature event #wehiketoheal was born out of a desire to help women learn the importance of “praying with their energy”, actively moving into alignment with their goals and living as if they already embody them.

The Outdoor Journal Tour and #wehiketoheal are designed for women who want to dive deeper into their personal development but are bored with traditional self-help methods. Participants will have the opportunity to explore scenic landscapes and hiking trails while being guided through an empowering (and customized) personal discovery process that uses physical activity, journaling and meditation as healing tools. The process includes daily writing prompts, engaging exercises and weekly guided meditations. If this sounds good to you we look forward to welcoming you into the community!
